Trying something new. It’s what drives the hospitality industry. Being hospitable by nature, I appreciate the small details and nuances that are intended to pamper and delight. It is essential that these images be authentic and real. I want to encourage viewers to explore what life has to offer, to try new things and to seek and appreciate the moments of bliss in their lives. I think that is what hospitality photography is all about. Present moment, beautiful moment. Images : Cunard, The Biltmore Hotel, Tanzy Restaurant 

Creating. Building Something New.

It’s what drives us in one way or another. I love construction sites. They are rich with metaphor and speak to me on a spiritual level. I was on my way to pick up my girls at school when I drove by someones new project. Stopped the car. Paused the schedule. Wandered around… present moment, beautiful moment. Briefly, there was no such thing as time…

I was amazed at the emotional connection and feelings of love, joy and deep gratitude I felt as I walked away from it. Thoughts of drives to and from with my girls knowing they were growing and different each time they got in and out. All the photo shoots with my car loaded with gear, allowing me to be creative and earn a living. Often standing on top of it as a platform for me and my tripod. I thought of many good times jamming to loud music with family, friends and especially my girls. The lectures. The laughter. Holding […]

Photographing Friends

As a photographer I have always photographed my friends and family. Unfortunately because of my busy schedule and limited time, I do this less and less. That’s why I was so happy when Sophie needed some photos for her new website, https://www.lesprittherapy.com/. I was so happy to spend this time with her. It was like ‘stopping to smell the roses’. Being in her beautiful garden among her treasured objects, I was filled with appreciation and love for this beautiful soul whose purpose it is to assist in the healing of others. I love these images of her. This has inspired […]

When You Feel Like You’ve Lost Your Path….

Sometimes when I’m not sure how to proceed in some area of my life (be it creative, personal, spiritual or financial),  I go back to what inspires me and start again. Today I found some work in my archives that reminded me of my path. May not make sense to anyone but me, I know. What is inspiring your path?

Do You Think You Know Why You Are a Creative? Ha!

In 2009 MMGY Global hired me to shoot lifestyle images for a resort in Pensacola, Florida. The images were to be used for their new black and white ad campaign. Excited about the opportunity to shoot B&W, my crew and I arrived at the resort to find that the weather for the next week would be stormy and gray. However, the team and I agreed that since it was a black and white campaign, we might be able to be productive anyway, so we stuck to the shoot schedule.  As it turned out, the weather wasn’t the only thing that […]
